Hey BM

Yes, we were out. Beauty day here in the Koots. A few folks up the lake at Wapiti and at Zebra. First day out for most. We did some lines at Zebra, and also planned to check out Waterline afterwards. However to get back to Waterline we had to drive by the Lion's Head pub, and were sucked in by the strange antigravity-vacuum-vortex which has its epi-centre in the pub's parking lot. But we had good intentions.

Here is a pic of Zebra Wall taken last fall. Ticks are out already.

Didn't do much climbing this weekend other than some chossy scrambling, but in Vancouver sunny winter skies must be shared:

Anyone want to get out climbing tomorrow?

Saturday was a gorgeous day. Here is a photo of an anonymous climber on Sunblessed. That second pitch is so great.

There's active logging going on at the base of my localest crag so I went for a hike to another one yesterday. Two and a bit hour bushwack approach. Nice rock. Have better things to lug a rack to. Nice views.

On that trajectory, the bag landed on the aft end of the longboard which............was then propelled into the sylvan area behind. Noise frightened dog; dog yelp scared Ais and yet all were howlin' with laffter ( dog included ) 10 sec afterwards.

Search for longboard continues.

Trying to keep the Big Mike stoke going on here with some old climbing pics. I've never taken pictures while climbing in Squamish so was surprised to find these ones buried in a cabinet. I totally forgot about this event ever taking place,early Alzheimer's I guess. It was either Jim Brennan taking these pics or my New Zealand friend John McCallum in 1989 or 1990.

I never did own any Lycra, I found Zellers track pants far more stylish.
